It makes sense. Cost effective. Makes us less dependent on foreign oil. Makes American stronger. Basically, all those things democrats hate.

umm, right... like when you get shot in the chest, it's not the bullet that kills you necessarily. it's all that blood rushing out

but wait. the water isnt rushing anymore. why are so many tens of thousands of people (and potentially the 39 million in the greater Tokyo area) at risk now?

hmm...

word on the street is that democrats hate house fires. But they are an effective way of getting rid of unwanted junk, with the added benefit that your unwelcome house guests will also have to go somewhere else. Also, they provide free heat. What could be more cost effective than free heat? Plus, afterward you won't have ANY utility bills, assuming that it's a thorough fire! And the adverse effects will surely make you stronger. Might put some hair on your chest.

House fires make sense.

It would be fine with me if we had a Nuclear Power Plant, locating it in the area of 14th & Tippecanoe.
We could hire all the local monkeys and half breeds in the area to monitor for any releases.
Just my opinion.....

They probably wouldn't show up for work. That is because it would be considered a job. Why work when you get welfare.

Who in the world would support nuclear power with all that is going on in Japan right now? Renewables are the only way to go.

Just a guess here, but I'm pretty sure nobody who is reading this forum is educated to the point they can set forth an argument for or against. Modern nuclear power plants are not those we are familiar with at Three Mile Island, Chernybol, or Fukushima Dai-ichi. Based on the limited knowledge I have on the subjest, I'm all for nuclear power, and that comes from a democrat who once prided myself for my involvement in the No Nukes movesment of the late '70s.

There is too much waste generated by these plants. The Dump sites are becoming too numerous. I feel That more studies need to be done as to the waste disposal .

The Yucca Mountain Nuclear Waste Repository was to be a deep geological repository storage facility for spent nuclear reactor fuel and other high level radioactive waste, until the project was canceled in 2009. It was to be located on federal land adjacent to the Nevada Test Site in Nye County, Nevada, about 80 mi (130 km) northwest of the Las Vegas metropolitan area. The proposed repository was within Yucca Mountain, a ridge line in the south-central part of Nevada near its border with California.
Although the location has been highly contested by both environmentalists and non-local residents in Las Vegas, which is over 100 miles (160 km) away, it was approved in 2002 by the United States Congress. However, under the Obama Administration[2] funding for development of Yucca Mountain waste site was terminated effective with the 2011 federal budget passed by Congress on April 14, 2011. The US GAO stating that the closure was for political, not technical or safety reasons.[2] This leaves United States civilians without any long term storage site for high level radioactive waste, currently stored on-site at various nuclear facilities around the country, although the United States government can dispose of its waste at WIPP, in rooms 2,150 feet (660 m) underground.[3] The Department of Energy is reviewing other options for a high level waste repository.

I also read that Illinois is #1 in nuclear power plants. Alot were built back in the 60s and have had no maintenance since... They're in bad shape!, also without having the nuclear waste site that KCACO mentioned , the wastes are being stored on the same property of the reactors... This us and will be a growing concern to the children of the future. These concerns , I feel, need to be addressed before any more plants are built.
